    Yes you can drink winny .. Many people that drink winny seem to forget to take the absorbtion rate into consideration . It has a lower absorbtion rate.( like 20 -25 % difference in absorbtion rate )..

    Also oral winny is better for binding to SHGB and increasing free test while inject causes a much greater increase in protein synthesis and nitrogen retention.. I like inject better ..

    I would not do a dbol only cycle..

    You see Lexed I want this thread to be serious so it can be helpful to people .. So even though I know your messing around there are alot of people that really want to know the answer to those questions so I decided to answer them ...

    I guess you would be wasting a bit of it if you drank winny. I think I would still rather inject.

    Merc I post it up cause I knew there where gonna ppl ask that question better it be on top right? I got a serious question thought if your on TRT and do a cycle do you keep more gaines with a regular pct or the prescrived trt dosage? Would a regular pct with your trt dosage be even more helpful in keeping gaines?

    When on HRT you do not need to do a pct... Its basically cruise than if you wanted to bump up the doses and do a cycle ....

    So you could do HRT than bump up doses to do a cycle than go back down to a HRT dose .. No pct would be required..

    Cruise , cycle , cruise ...

    from past experiences...if one experiences gyno, takes nolva, sides subside, then sides return and begins nolva again to combat gyno then sides subside...could this be a regular part of the cycle? could it be a go on nolva, go off nolva thing for the entire cycle?

    Moush,

    Good question...

    Nolva lowers igf-1 so it can reduce your gains. Using an Ai can also effect your gains ( you read my estrogen and AI article about that)..

    So with the situation you are having you can either try using the nolva again until symptoms subside and than drop it .. Or you could try using adex ( or another Ai ) for the remainder of your cycle..

    I think I would use the nolva again since it knocked your symptoms out quick last time ( and than stop it again when symptoms subside)..

    If i am on a cycle and get gyno symptoms I usually start nolva A.S.A.P ... I have had it flair up twice in a cycle and used nolva to deal with it . So it was go on , go off for me on that cycle..

    Please keep me us posted on your cycle progress ...

    From what I have seen people that are on hrt and than bump up doses and do a cycle , than go back to cruising do not really lose much or their gains at all ..

    There are also people who do a pct that hold most of their gains .. So it kinda would depend on the person , how they eat and train .. Plus if they are doing a proper pct or not..

    this is a good idea merc......

    question for you

    Say you were running a cycle of test e and deca... and you ran out of test the same time as deca ... could one run prop for the last two weeks and keep the same balance ?
  13. Merc..'s Avatar

    • permalink
    Yes you could use prop for the last two weeks .. As you know its a fast acting ester so it works pretty quick...

    Keep in mind also that people use prop at the end of thier cycles to let the long esters clear so they can start pct sooner .. I dont do this but alot of people tell me they prefer doing it that way ..

    Yea I figured I would use my blog in a diffrent way so people could get my personal opinion on some questions they have..

    Merc i will soon be starting a cycle of test e 600mg for 10 weeks frontloaded and Npp wks 4-10(all i can get) at 400/wk. Also with a 3 week kickstart 40mg dbol/d I have nolva, letro, and adex on hand for gyno probs and for pct. First, do u think i need to pick up some aromasin and second does this cycle look well put togather? thanks for your willingness to help others like you do.

    Fordfan,

    No problem thanks for posting your question..

    What are your stats and prior cycle history ??

    I wouldn't use nlova while on your cycle since you are using NPP ( a 19 nor).. Nolva increases PgR in breast tissue and gives more for the metabolites to bind to thus possibly increasing your chances of getting gyno..

    Even though NPP is fast acting I would still also consider running the test a bit past it.. Maybe a week or so longer.. I find that doing this does make a diffrence for me .. I have stopped both at the same time ,and have ran the test up to two wks longer than the NPP. It was alot better for me using the test longer..

    As for aromasin , yes i would pick some up for your pct.. I like Anthony Roberts pct protocol.. Using aromasin ,nolva and HCG..

    Baseball player Barry Bonds indicted on perjury, obstruction charges
    41 minutes ago

    SAN FRANCISCO - Barry Bonds has been indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice, charged with lying when he told a federal grand jury that he did not knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs.

    The indictment unsealed Thursday against baseball's home run king culminated a four-year investigation into steroid use by elite athletes. "During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances for Bonds and other athletes," the indictment read.

    In August, the 43-year-old Bonds passed Hank Aaron to become baseball's career home run leader. Late in the season, the San Francisco Giants told the seven-time National League MVP they didn't want him back next year.

    Bonds finished the year with 762 career homers, seven more than Aaron, and is currently a free agent. In 2001, he set the season record with 73 home runs.

    John Burris, one of Bonds' lawyers, did not know of the indictment before being alerted by The Associated Press. He said he would immediately call Bonds to notify him.

    "I'm surprised," Burris said, "but there's been an effort to get Barry for a long time. I'm curious what evidence they have now they didn't have before."

    Bonds has repeatedly denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs. He has never been identified by Major League Baseball as testing positive.

    The White House quickly weighed in on the indictment. President Bush is a former owner of the Texas Rangers.

    "The president is very disappointed to hear this," Bush spokesman Tony Fratto said. "As this case is now in the criminal justice system, we will refrain from any further specific comments about it. But clearly this is a sad day for baseball."

    Former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, who is investigating drug use in baseball, declined comment. So did Hall of Fame vice-president Jeff Idelson.

    Bonds was charged in the indictment with lying when he said he didn't knowingly take steroids given to him by his personal trainer and longtime friend, Greg Anderson. Bonds is also charged with lying that Anderson never injected him with steroids.

    "Greg wouldn't do that," Bonds testified in December 2003 when asked if Anderson ever gave him any drugs that needed to be injected. "He knows I'm against that stuff."

    Bonds became the highest-profile figure caught up in the government investigation launched in 2002 with the raid of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), the Burlingame-based supplements lab at the centre of a steroids distribution ring.

    Bonds has long been shadowed by allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs. The son of former big league star Bobby Bonds, Barry broke into the majors with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986 as a lithe, base-stealing outfielder.

    By the late 1990s, he'd bulked up to more than 240 pounds - his head, in particular, becoming noticeably bigger. His physical growth was accompanied by a remarkable power surge.

    Speculation of his impending indictment had mounted for more than a year.

    In July 2006, the U.S. attorney in San Francisco took the unusual step of going public with the investigation. After the previous panel's 18-month term expired, he announced he was handing it off to a new grand jury.

    Anderson was at the centre of the investigation. He spent most of the past year in a federal detention centre for refusing to testify to the grand jury.

    According to testimony obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle, Bonds testified in 2003 that he took two substances given to him by Anderson - which he called "the cream" and "the clear" - to soothe aches and pains and help him better recover from injuries.

    The substances fit the description of steroids distributed by BALCO founder Victor Conte. But when questioned under oath by investigators, Bonds said he believed Anderson had given him flaxseed oil and an arthritic balm.

    Investigators and the public had their doubts.

    Aiming to prove Bonds a liar, prosecutors tried to compel Anderson to testify. When he refused, they jailed him for contempt.

    Bonds joins several defendants tied to BALCO. Anderson served three months in prison and three months of home detention after pleading guilty to steroid distribution and money laundering.

    Conte also served three months in prison after he pleaded guilty to steroids distribution.

    Patrick Arnold, the rogue chemist who created the designer steroid THG, BALCO vice-president James Valente and track coach Remi Korchemny all also pleaded guilty. Korchemny and Valente were sentenced to probation and Arnold sent to prison for four months.

    Kirk Radomski, a former New York Mets clubhouse attendant, pleaded guilty April 27 to drug and money laundering charges.

    Elite cyclist Tammy Thomas and track coach Trevor Graham have each pleaded not guilty to lying to a grand jury and federal investigators about their involvement with steroids.

    Dozens of other prominent athletes have been connected to BALCO, including New York Yankees slugger Jason Giambi who told the grand jury he injected steroids purchased at BALCO and Detroit Tigers outfielder Gary Sheffield who testified that Bonds introduced him to BALCO.
